Introductory course to ski mountaineering

Check terms and conditions and levels of difficulty.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will come back to you as soon as possible.

Course for trail skiers tired of the crowds, the price of the ski pass, or just feel like going to see beyond the ski lifts in the valley next door. With this course you will learn the basics of ski mountaineering to move independently. During the course we will mix theoretical / practical concepts with ascents to peaks, so at the end you can safely move in search of those descents and solitary valleys of those who have spoken to you.

Requirements: Intermediate level alpine ski, mastering the parallel turn and have a physically fit.
